Top 10 Breaking Bad Charactersdjh101
The Top Ten
Jesse is SO much better than Walt. Walt transitions from an extremely likeable character into an evil, power hungry maniac. He destroys every other character in the shows lives and uses cancer, and his family as justification for his lust for power. Although his character is well portrayed Bryan Cranston, the only thing he could possibly rank number 1 in is most unlikable characters of all time.
There isn't one season where we don't sympathize for the good hearted meth head. From his romances cut short and his neglecting family, his life is constantly throwing shade at him. Regardless, he's smarter than the characters give him credit for, great with kids, and overall a good person with potential. No one could've played Pinkman better than Aaron Paul. May you and Mr. White reign over television beyond eternities.
He's the bomb, yo!
Jesse Pinkman is number one. Yeah, science!V 25 Comments
I think the transition from good to bad is extremely fascinating for anyone who watches the show. He, of course, gets to the peak of his greed and cruelty during the first half of Season 5, but at the same time, when he does the things he does, there's a part of you that understands why he does what he does, given his situation. For example, if Walt didn't let Jane die, Jesse would have overdosed on heroin and died, and Jane probably would die anyway too. He made that decision to save Jesse, and it hurt him to do that. If he didn't have Jesse kill Gale, Walt would be dead, and Jesse would probably die too. If he didn't poison Brock, not only would he die, but everyone in his family would die. He also knew exactly how much to give him in order to keep him alive. The one time that I think he went too far was when he killed Mike, because there was no reason whatsoever to do it. I was fine with the prison killings because it sort of felt like a great big victory, not just for Walt, but ...more
I would vote for someone else but I couldn't resist to give my vote to Walter because after all he is the alpha and omega of the show and really think that he totally deserve it. I was angry with him when he let Jane died that was the only thing that was almost totally wrong but he did it for the sake of the show it couldn't be season 4 and 5 if jessy get away with Jane. Then when season 5 reach Walter started to act really greedy and he really made some bad choices in order to achieve what he achieve and he totally didn't have any reason to make 80 million dollars because even 1 million was more than enough to take care of his family so greed was guiding him for sure. However in the end he paid for his sins in some way, he died alone, his son hated him, all his family hated him, he died in the end but pinkman not. Also in last episode Walter haded the chance to kill pinkman but instead he gave him the gun and he let him go also he save him from the nazi thugs, so after all he shows ...more
"Say My Name"
Walter white not only is the most developed and has the biggest arc but we also root for him even when he is organising prison massacres, poisoning kids or blowing up nursing homes. It means something when you go for a character despite the terrible crimes they commit. Jesse is great and has an amazing arc, that's why it's the best show of all time and always will be, because the ensemble cast all perform 100%. I just think Jesse is maybe the most likeable their for peoples favourite but as far as BEST goes, it can be none other.V 37 Comments
He is the most likable criminal character in the series
He's like my favorite character ever! He's so wise, loyal and despite all the things that go through his life, he never tried to kill any innocent person. He's a character to die and root for. Rip legend
What an epic dude - you gotta love him!

"Better Call Saul! " - SandersS16
Legally born James Morgan McGill, Saul felt he could never get anywhere in life by doing good. Clueless to the concept of proper law practice, Jimmy decided to let it go, becoming a lawyer for criminals. He's a very fun character, morally ambiguous, yet seeming like this charming, affable person who wants what's best for everyone. Until he suggests putting a hit on Jesse, that is.
He's very lost and misguided, and that's what's so fascinating about him. - SourNote2014
Saul has always been my favorite character. He's always positive and adds some brightness and humor to what would have been a generally dark-themed show. - DoritoV 9 Comments
Look, he might get under your skin sometimes, but he's a good guy. He always wants to do the right thing.
What a jerk! One dimensional. Full of self who sees world only in black and white. Even Gus has more humanity. Only wish his character had died sooner.
A great character that always tries to the do the right thing, and ends up losing his life for what he believes in (justice). It also really helps that he's played by Dean Norris, who in my opinion is the 2nd best actor in the show (just behind Bryan Cranston)
Reasonably the best character in the series. And by best, I mean as a DEA agent, as a brother-in-law and a good man in general. He didn't deserve what he got in the end but we all knew it was gonna happen at some point because every step he took to further the Heisenberg case only lead to increased risks to his life.

I like to think that gus didn't actually order his dealers to kill tomas and if you don't count that then there is only one murder he commits throughout the series that isn't purely about making hector suffer for what he did to his friend all those years ago.
That kind of dynamic is just so interesting and it makes gus stick out in my head. Kind of disappointed that they went with saul for the spin-off cause gus seems much more fascinating, I definitely could have used more scenes with gus and his "brother."
Of course I don't even need to mention his amazing death scene which is perfect, if I forget everything about the series I will still remember that scene.
Easily one of the best villians of all time. How can you not place him at the top of the list
The most powerful, professional kingpin with a secret underground drug empire. Gus is the greatest, even his death was well earned. Also has anyone noticed that Gus never once refers Walt as 'Heisenberg'?
Am I the only one whom seems to have quite a struggle to decide whether I hate Gus, or actually like him? To me he is controversial, and confusing, in a good way. He is a well-built (character wise) man, and it is surprising to see what he'll do next! (SPOILER: Like when he just BAM sliced Victor's throat) One minute I am supporting him, the next I want him dead! THAT, is a great villain.V 12 Comments
Though he only appeared in a total of five episodes, Tuco was a herald towards a bigger, much darker story revealed in season 4.
He is also the show's only extroverted villain, and Raymond Cruz makes the most of it. He's frighteningly psychotic yet also a ton of fun to watch. It seemed like he was going to literally fly off the walls every time he inhaled any meth.
His family life is also implied to be very intriguing. He loves his grandma, as shown in 'Better Call Saul', and his uncle... his relationship with his uncle was a complicated one.
Though a legitimate threat, Tuco was also an entertaining one, and should he appear again in 'Better Call Saul', he's always welcome.
Like his namesake, a minute with him can change your life. - SourNote2014
Tuco Salamanca is the best character in breaking bad. No comparison.!.!
So much to say about Skyler. The comments against her are a double standard of gender roles.
Skyler is not the perfect wife or the perfect mother. In fact, she and Walt have several aspects in common which people accept more about Walt. Like her husband, she lies and keeps secrets. She hid the fact that she was having an affair with Ted the same time Walt was first leading his double life as a meth cook.
She has drive and initiative. She's not afraid to try dirty tricks to get her own way when she aids Walt in the money laundering operation. She is just as manipulative and dangerous as him, though not quite as physical.
She's smart, possibly smarter than him. She's definitely more logical than him, and provides a good foil to Walt's increasing paranoia and delusions of grandeur.
Despite all this, unlike Walt, she has more of a domestic role to fill. On one hand, this makes her an overbearing mother, one filling a traditional role of a wife in a television series. On the ...more
My husband's cooking meth to provide for our family. I'm pissed, so I guess I'll sleep with a guy who's embezzling money for his family.
Skyler is the best charater in Breaking Bad. Said no one ever. - SandersS16
She's strong, flawed and interesting. She's an antihero of sorts, to be viewed as a three-dimensional human being.V 5 Comments
I like this guy. Reasonably. - SandersS16
Greatest character ever.
The best bodyguard ever
He is so good at waiting on the couchV 2 Comments
He is just too innocent for the harsh and dark world of Breaking Bad. I seriously like this character. - Daviddv0601
Pancakes - SandersS16
Why isn't this guy higher up? He should be nr. 1! Like seriously. Look at him! Look how tough he is! Look at all he has to gone through and his spirit is still tough as hell! He is the one who is able to hold the family together! And he's 16! What kind of teenager manages to do that? Walter family plus almost everyone here must barely realize how lucky they are to have him! He is always kind and nurturing.
THE MOST INNOCENT CHARACTER THE SHOW OFFERS!V 2 Comments
The fact that a bell is the most terrifying sound on the show should tell you something about how great Hector is.
Papa with ringbell is awesome :D
Dingdingidngindign ding ding ding
That's church, yo.
Two nuts in a ballsack, yo.
The guy should write and direct the next Star Trek movie
Should be ranked before skyler white and jr.walter white
She deserves to be at least top 10
How the hell is Marie in the 23th position?
I think her character is the comic relief in the show, so funny.
Girl Power.No honestly they need better female characters like Game of Thrones. but Sky is hoottt for her age baby. thank you
Despite being another short-lived primary antagonist, he did some of the most damage in the series. From killing poor Hank and murdering Jesse's second girlfriend, he was a walking pile of destruction that need to be put down. - Daviddv0601
Say what you will about the mans morality but at least he gets it done. I'd love to see a show about the gang.
Funny - SandersS16
LMAO! Why is a Walking Dead character on here?! Anyway, it's talking about the BB character. - Daviddv0601
She doesn't even belong here!
This is probably meant to be the Andrea who was on breaking bad, Jesse's girlfriend - Iamchewbacca37
If she was in breaking bad, she would be the best character ever LOL
Should be higher on list
I Love Combo! I met Rodney Rush the actor who plays him and he is amazing as well.
Even though he was only in the first 3 episodes his last episode had a good way of showing his history...until walt kills him
Good guy as of a villain
I love this guy
Should be higher
I only voted for him to be higher. He is Hanks buddy, and that's gotta make him yours too! :(
Child murdering scumbag - Daviddv0601
Slimy piece of s--- - SandersS16
Too bad he was only in season 5
Should be higher
Literally nicest meth cook ever.
By far the most missed character upon his death. I personally relate to that character and seeing him die struck me hard.
RIP - LightningBladeV 4 Comments
SHUT THE DOOR TUCKER!
Shouldn't BE ON THIS LIST - Andyandy
They really seem more like I single character. I thought they were cool
Massive prick but also very interesting
